While most adults will likely approach Bratz as nothing more than mind rotting fluff, McNamara manages to tackle some deeply entrenched high school quandaries, namely cliques and their destructive nature on friendships. Moving from their computer animated, straight to video releases to a live action, big screen adventure, The Bratz are tackling their biggest challenge yet: the angst ridden days of high school.
Controlled by the long arm of the Principal's spoiled daughter, Meredith, the queen bee is determined to maintain her powerful status by keeping the school populace segregated into cliques. At first the "Best Friends Forever" fights Meredith's stronghold, but as each member of the Bratz posse discovers their own unique talents, they are quickly pulled into separate factions. Before it's too late though, a fateful mistake by Meredith reunites the girls, joining them together to take down the student body president's tyrannical rule.
Reminiscent of many late eighties' films aimed at children, Bratz is epic in scale, spanning three years of the girls' high school careers, but underneath all the shopping, singing and dancing there are actually powerful messages.Read more ›
While much of the movie is cotton candy, there's some meat to it as well. Wonderful lessons are taught--such as standing up for yourself without trashing your opressor, forgivness, friendship, selflessness, willing to do what's hard for a good cause, respect for your elders...I could go on. Unlike in so many teen movies and tween sitcoms you find on Disney or Nickelodeon, the girls all have great respect for their parents and have loving relationships with them. Cloe tells a room full of people that her mom, who selflessly and tirelessly works to provide for her daughter, is her hero. The teachers at school are not shown as clueless--apart from the principal, who is Meredith's father...but he also cares for his children and tries to encourage them. Cherish, Meredith's sister, says to him "You're a good Dad." A boy defends Jade's honor when another makes a rude comment. The main characters make mistakes and admit them, then apologize. The things that usually embarrass teenagers and tweens (being driven in Mom's car, being a 'nerd', making your own clothes, working and going against the flow) are embraced and glorified. A particularly memorable moment is when, amid the backlight and fog and dramatic music, the girls pull up to an event and step out in slow motion--from Cloe's mom's minivan. Absolutely pricless.
The language amounts to about 5-6 usages of God's name, but no more.Read more ›
So along comes the Bratz movie, and I got it for my birthday (after being teased something rotten for wanting it). When I got round to watch it, I found myself lost in a world of high school, cheerleaders, and friends. Within the first half an hour, the Bratz girls (Cloe, Jade, Sasha, and Yasmin) have gone to high school, joined their separate cliques, and lost each other's friendship. This bit almost had me in tears, as they grew apart really quickly. But only to meet up again after two years, and wonder why they threw away their friendship.
My favourite Bratz doll was always Jade. I loved the black hair. So it seems to be that my favourite Bratz girl in the move was Jade (played by Janel Parrish), with the kooky dress sense, blue hair extensions, wicked clothes, and wicked all over. I loved Yasmin (Nathalia Ramos) as well, I wasn't so keen on Cloe (Skyler Shaye) however, she just didn't seem to have a big part in the movie. And Sasha's (Logan Browning) storyline was really predictable.
If it hadn't have been for films such as High School Musical, Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, Mean Girls and many others, I doubt Bratz would have even got the green light.Read more ›
